NUMBER 11  if  MIKADO.  In the production of Gilbert and Sullivan's famous  opera, the Mikado, during the past week, the Nelson  Operatic Society has sustained its high reputation and  -added to its laurels. This paper has always held  that amateur performances given in public, and  w Inch the public are induced to attend on the representation tbat they will be entertained, are properly  the subject for strict criticism, aud if the representations are in any case not fulfilled, that performance  should be condemned. It is with great satisfaction  that we can say ofthe Nelson Operatic Society that  it has always more than met its obligations in this  respect. For the three nights that "the Mikado has  been presented, large crowds have thronged the Opera  House and have gone away at the end of the performance satisfied. The opera itself is too well known to  call for any remarks on the libretto or the score. Of  the performers it might besaid that the general level  of excellence was remarkable. It is very usual tb  find in such performances some parts noticeably inferior. Such, however, was not the case in this instance. The principals were one and all good ; the  chorus accurate, firm and full. Mrs. Melville Parry  as Yum Yum was delightful. Undoubtedly comic  opera is particularly the sphere in which this lady  excels. Added to her rich flexible soprano, she possesses a refined appreciation of humor and a grace  and appropriateness of action that fully meet  the dramatic, requirements of the piece. Mrs.  R. W. Hannington entirely captivated the  audience in her rendering of the part of Pitti Sing.  Her perfectly artistic singing of a part which,-it must  be admitted, was not" the most suitable for her voice  and charming stage presence and manner, called forth  most enthusiastic applause whenever she appeared.  Miss Ida Johnson as Peep-Bo, the third of the." Three  Little Maids," was not behind her companions in her  clever andeiFicientperfoimar.ee. In Mrs. M. S. .  Davys the character of Katisha was presented most  perfectly. This is a part.of exceptional difficulty and  Mrs. Davys shewed Herself possessed of'a perfect understanding of its humor and a capability of portraying it as the uuthor intended. ' Of tbe men it was  found that a-pleasant surprise was in store in more  .than one instance. Mr. George Kyddis well known  on the concert stage here, but his admirers were not  expecting the clever representation he gave of the  youthful Nanki Poo. Mr. Wright as Pooh-Bah also  exceeded every expectation. The part of Ko-Ko is  ofeourseau exceedingly difficult one to fill satisfactorily, and tbe management must be congratulated  in their discrimination in selecting Mr. Edgar Mason  for the part. With, a natural talent for boisterous  '. comedy..Mr...Mason had evidently,bestowed careful _  work on the preparation of his part, and tbe result  was a most unqualified success. Mr. Ralph Clark  took the part of Pish Tush cleverly; his deep pass  sounding particularly well in'the Madrigal. Mr. T.  J. Scanlan threw himself into the part ofthe Mikado,  and merited the enthusiastic applause which he re-  c eived. Mr- R. McFarland evoked some laughter  w ith his small part of Nee Ban. The choruses uere  good, An additional rehearsal or two, however,  wculd not have been amiss, and this appeared clearly  by the improvement noticeable on Thursday night  over Wednesdays performance. To be quite fair, the  men needed this more than the ladies, thelatter seeming more certain in their attack and finish. The  ladies however had the advant age of having as leaders  Mesdames Armstrong and McLeod, who have done so  much in the past in advancing the cause of comic  opera in the City of Nelson. Tbe ladies' chorus at  the beginning ofthe second act was perhaps the most  pleasing feature cf the chorus work. Since we have  gotintothe critical vein, however, we might add that  th e stage wcik would 1-e improved if scute of the  ladies paid moTe attention to .thebusiness in hand and  less to their friends in the audience. On this account  there seemed at times a lack of unity in the movement of the chorus. The need of further rehearsal  was observable, too, in the work of the orchestra.  Thursday night's performance was in this matter also  a great improvement oil Wednesday's. A slight  misunderstanding that occurred on Wednesday uight  between the orchestra and the Mikado niitjht have  beeu avoided with a itltle extra practice. They had  settled their difference before Thursday's performance  and all was harmony between them. Finally; a word  of special-recognition must be added for Mr. Melville  -Parry and Mr. W A. jowett. without whose utitiring  energy and able management su^h grand results  could not have been accomplished.  POLITICAL GOSSIP  Before the next issue of this paper is  in the hands of its readers the electorate of British Columbia will have determined upon the men who are to  rule the province for the next four  years. The exercise of the franchise  at this time ia a matter of grave impor-  ance. For several years past the affairs of the country have been doing  from bad to worse, until now anything  like sane legislation seems impossible.  With new blood in the House something could be done to pull us out of  the slough of despond, and herein lies  the duty of the electorate. Now is the  seeding time. Whatever we sow that  shall we also reap. We cannot sow  tares and reasonably pxpect to reap  wheat. It is therefore the duty of every  voter to mark his ballot for the man  most likely to supply us with the legislation so much needed in the provinco.  It has been deemed advisable to  conduct this election on party lines,  to avoid, if possible, a continuance  of the shameless traffic in votes in the  House, aud no doubt there is wisdom  in' the departure. But, after all, the  party can scarcely be any better than  the rank and file of tbe men composing it. To our way of thinking, generally speaking the Conservatives  have a better class of men than the  Liberals in the present contest, and we  therefore hope to see a majority of  Conservatives elected ; but we are free  to confess tbat wherever there is a  better Liberal than a Conservative  running, It will be no disappointment  lo see that Literal elected.-An able  Opposition is quite as essential and desirable as a capable Government; the  best that is in men is only brought out  by being, continually on their metal,  and that is just the way it would be if  the Conservative-Government were  continually kept to its work. Again,  this is hot so much a fight forparty supremacy as it is for intelligent legislation. This is the issue that should be  kept forembpt in the minds of ihe electors. Should it happen that the Liberals  controlled the next House, it would be  well tbat capable men of that party  were selected.  . There arc numerous reasons why tbe  eloctors should have grave cause to  doubt the sincerity of John Houston's  utterances, not only as a Conservative,  but as a great public benefactor. There  are two classes of sportsmen , oue who  shoots for the sport, and the other who  hunts for the pot. This applies equally  to politicians^ There are those who  seek office for-ambition and those who  are public-spirited; as against those  who are purely "pot-hunters" in.tne  business. ��� Looking ..back, one can remember tbat John Houston was always anxious to secure public utilities  in a private way and then hand them j  on to the, public at the very top price���  for example, the electric light plant.  He boasts of having secured many  things for..tbe city, foreshore, park,  etc. As a matter of,fact, these things  had been conceded' to the city years  ago, and he only happened to hold office when the time~;.was ripe to hand  them over. To follow his line of  boasting, one would imagine that  being elected to represent the people  at Victoria he had no duty to perform unless he thought' fit, and that  anything he did was impossible for  others to do. Contemplating John  Houston's stewardship at Victoria in  the past, a host of sins of omission and  commission must must be manifest,  and this boastful tone of almost demanding the suffrages of the people is  nauseatins: to a great "number. No  oue can question the fact that he has  always used his power, his patronage  and his paper as a whip for the bacKs  of those who could not see through  his spectacles; rarely if ever has he  studied the fitness of. his actions as a  public man. The present unfortunate  position of the Conservative party in  this city is the logical sequence of this  man's actions in the past. Can any  one hope for anything better in the future?  William Hunter is putting up a good  fight in the Slocan riding, and will in  all probability be elected, but it may  be by a small majority.  There does not seem to be any doubt  of Mr. Green's election in the Kaslo  riding. He has made a -thorough canvass of his constituency and has met  with encouragement in every quarter.  Hon. Robt. Green, of Kaslo, wjas in  the city to-day.-- '<   - -    -      .'-'.-  ."acJ1     fcj  r wwwvwwvwywvwwwv^^i^^^w^^>v v^****^*^*****^**  The Nelson  Industrial Exhibition  The citizens of Nelson have undertaken many things in the past and nearly nlways achieved  success, but all past efforts have been eclipsed' by the exhibition under the auspices of the Nelson  Agricultural, and Industrial Association, which closed yesterday. This fair has shown what can  be done by intelligent work.- The success of the exhibition was mainly due to the untiring  efforts of J. E. Annable, assisted by B- C. Traves, James McPhee, W. J. Holmes, Jacob Dover(  Fred Emory, W. A. Thurman, John A. Kirkpatrick, J. J. Malone. and a few others, uot forgetting  the ladies who contributed so generously of their time towards the patriotic work.  It is a significant fact that the variety, quantity and quality of the exhibits did not surprise  strangers more tl\au they did our own people. In our efforts to develop what i.s regarded as the  staple industry we have been blinded to the fact that right at our own doors we have vast tracts o'  the finest fruit-growing land in the Dominion of Canada. If no reason than to impress this fact ou  our citizens the fair has accomplished a great amount of good.  Of course the mineral, and fruit displays attracted mast attention. Mr. D->ver spent several  days in arranging the mineral exhibit,, with the result that what is rejjardil a^s th; finest display of  specimens ever seen in the Dominion was presented to the view of the public.  The fruit display was a revelation to many, who were not aware that so many varieties were  grown here. Tbe apples particularly were striking evidence of what ca:i bz accomplished, in the way  of fruit-growing in this province.  �� ' i '        . .. ���  There were so many good tilings at the fair that it.would be impossible hi the sni.tll space at onr  disposal to mention them particularly.    Suffice it to s.iy, everything- w.is all th.it could be desired.  It was a courageous business enterprise, and   those to who n it   was entrusted are deserving of  the highest praise.     Me. Annable, th^energetic secretary, left nothing u.idpue to rouse a general in-  ��     tefe.it in it throughout the city a:il district. a:U its success h largely dui t >  him.  It is too early to predict results, but it has undoubtedly sho.vu the attractions and resources of  Nelson to be more varied and extensive than most people supposed.  ' . y-  N  ews of the  M  mes  Notwithstanding the Tact that we  are in the middle of an election fight,  the absorbing topic of conversation is  the discoveries that are being made  everywhere. The display of minerals  at the exhibition enlightened thepub-  lfeas scarcely anything else loukl have  done. The specimens exhibited came  from every part of the province, and  visitors were amazed atthe richness of  the ore from places about which little  has been said in the press. With the  opening of spring, mining will have a  boom uopieccdented in tbe history of  this province.  SLOCAN MINING NOTES.  ��������*.'  Slocan Drill.  Lust week the Sandon mines sent  out 146 tons of ore.  A- deal, is being worked up on the  Meteor, on a working bond.  About 200 tons of ore a week is being  shipped from the Slocan.  John Wafer started work this week  on the Club, udjoining the B��public.  . Lumber for the ore bins has been  going up to the Ottawa, during the  week.  Frank. Malcolm has taken a contract  to develop the Ruth mine and to run  the mill.  The heavy fall of snow on the higher  hills has prevented several assessments  from bei n g don c.  The annual meeting of the Arlington company will bejield here the  second week iu October.  BOUNDARY MIKING NOTES..  I'liocnlx I'ioneer.  Tuesday was the monthly payday at  the Snowshoe mine, when around  $7,500 was paid out in wages. This  mine now has over 90 employes.  The platform for loading cars for the  Athlestou mine on the Winnipeg si>ur  has been completed, and Jackpot aa  well as rich Athelstan ore is being sent  out.  The third section of the ore bins for  the ore from the No. 2 section of tbe"  Granby mines is now being-,oempleted.  This will admit of greater oul^jt from  that level.  Forty or more cars per day is the regular shipping record of the Granby  mlues at present. A number of men  have come in lately and found employment at these properties.  Work is continuing steadily now at .'  the Morrison mineT Deadwood camp,  where some 20 men are employed, and  ore is being hauled by wagon to the  railway for shipment to the Mother  Lode smelter.  Shipments of ore from the Bette an d  Hesperus mines to the Granby smelter,  have been started by wagon.    The ore"  body haa been proven to be20 feet wide  without   encounteriug   the  hanging  wall.  Five more stamps are to be installed  at the Waterloo mine, Camp McKin-  ney, making a battery of ten. Inside  of three months the mill haa produced'  $18,000 in gold, according to the report  of Secretary Wolf. Eighteen men-are '  employed " :  Owing to tbe favorable character of  the ores ofthe Oro Denoro, under the, "  contract with the Sunset smelter, e*y-v "'  eral car loads have beeu treated  with-"  out cost to the  Oro  Denoro manage-'  ment.

Monday night for the first time dur;  ing the present campaign the Conservatives of "Nelson had the pleasure of  hearing an exposition of the position  and policy of the government.   Until  then they bad heard and read only unfair attack and misstatement, to which  their alleged representative seemed un  able to reply.    Mr. Wilson's address  was a broad, able and comprehensive  discussion of provincial ail'airs, such us  is seldom heard here,  and a modest  and manly statement of the intentions  ��� of the government when they shall  have received the mandate of the electors of the province to carry out their  .   promises.  Mr. Wilson deserves well of his party  for hia ability, his integrity and his unselfishness.' At two successive .party  conventions he has been the choice for  leader, still, when the pc.liiicul.devel-  ',opnieuts atthe capital called .Mr. McBride to the position of First Minister,  Mr. Wilson readily accepted';a subordinate position and has gi\;en and is  giving loyal and able support to.-ills  leader. ^  This is rather in striking.contrast to  the position of our friends the enemy,  who dare not meet to consult about the  ��hoice of a leader lest they expose the  jealousies and prejudices,.,that., arc inevitable in a party which is coin posed  c-bieily of self-3cckers.  Bouic comment has made at a distance on tlie fact that the remarkably'  rich dise��v^iie3 of free milling gold in  the Xiardenu has caused so little excitement throughout Kootenay. 'The  explanation is that there arc similarly  rich finds in many parts ofthe Kootenay. There'arc no idle men iu the  country; many mines- nnd -smelters  are unable to obtain a full complement  of men because independent prospecting still oilers very large returns.  Kootenay is being fast, developed by  her own men with little or no outside  aid from foreign capilal, ami this kind  of development pays beat in the end.

Haujltaiw.-  This was accompanied by the following personal letter from Mr. Macdonald :  ���act from The Nelson Economist,  August 15th.  Fred  Starkey, President Liberal-Conservative Association, City :  ..DjsarSir,���lam anxious to make  one last effort towards harmony before  it is too late. I enclose a request  signed by a few of the many who desire a meeting. The decision and responsibility rest with you. If yon decide to call the meeting, I would sug?  gest notice being inserted in the morning paper. Trusting that'you will do  so, \V. A. Macdonald.  This requisition was not treated  with even the scant courtesy of a reply, which, everything considered, is  perhaps not to be marvelled at, The  only sign given that the president had  ever received the letter, was the more  prolific use ot foul language l>y the  '���gang" on the streets to express their  opinion bf respectable Conservatives.  Wben no answer to the requisition  was received, thirty or forty members,  of the party came together and decided  to call the public meeting of Conservatives which was held iu the board of  trade rooms Wednesday evening. The  Houstonites refused to attend that  meeting, although one or two of their  number, it is said, as is their custom on  occasions.of this character, availed 1  themselves of a convenient post-to witness the proceedings. The attendance  at that meeting was so large as to leave  no doubt of tbe widespread feeling of  resentment which prevails amongst  Nelson Conservatives at the outrageous  conduct of President Starkey. The  chair was occupied by Dr. Stoddart  and Mr. C. I. Archibald acted as sec-  rectary.  _It was moved by W. A. Macdonald,  seconded by Geo. Steed, and carried  unanimously :  Whereas Mr. Fred Starkey, as president of the Liberal-Conservative Association, has neglected to call any meeting of the association of Conservatives  generally for the purpose of either preparing to- heal the differences known  to exist in the local Conservative  ranks, and has broken faith as to meetings arranged with him to be called  for that purpose, and has also failed to  comply, with or even had the courtesy  to reply to a request signed by acknowledged Conservatiyes for a public  meeting of the association :  Therefore this public meetingof Conservatives approves of the calling of  this meeting so that the members of the  party as a whole may have an opportunity of being heard, and further this  meeting condemns the course pursued  by the president of the association and  declares his conduct betokens lack of  fairness, and true appreciation of his  position and an apparent desire to act  solely in the interest of a portion only  ofthe party.  _- -  ���a  >-���MI  A if  .'-v;: w  t.  ,  AT>&  a             y.jf  '.".

The process by which nature formt  inch accumulations of silver is very  interesting. /  It must be remembered that the  earth's crusty is full of water, -which  percolates everywhoro through th*  rocks, making solutions of elements obtained from them. These chemical solutions take up small particles of the precious metal which they find ..scattered  here and there.  Sometimes the solutions in. question  aro hot, the water having got a�� far  down aa to bo set boiling by tho internal heat of the globe. Then they rush  upward, ��� picking up the bits of metal  as .they go." Naturally heat assists tha  performance of this operation. Now  and then the streams thus formed, perpetually flowing' hither and.tli.UbcT below ground, pass through tho cracks or  cavities in tlie rocks, where they deposit their loads of silver.  This is kopt up for a great length of  time, perhaps thousands of years, until  the fissures of tbe pocket aro filled up.
